Music of 2013

This is a list of the albums I enjoyed the most from 2013. This list is in no particular order.
48The Ocean
Pelagial


This is an Album that is full of complex song writing, virtuosity, and plenty of technique. The album also flows very nicely from one song to the next. Pelagial is one of the best Progressive albums to come out in quite some time.
47Neko Case
The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight...


A good mix of Alt Rock and Country.
46Kylesa
Ultraviolet


Sludgy, Progressive and full of heavy riffs.
45Arcade Fire
Reflektor


A great follow up to their Grammy winning album entitled The Suburbs. This album includes quite a bit of interesting stuff.
44Vampire Weekend
Modern Vampires of the City


A fun Album to listen to.
43Enforcer
Death By Fire


Enforcer is one of the bright young bands reviving old school Metal.
42Foals
Holy Fire


A great album by Foals. "Unhealer" "Bad Habit" and "My Number" are some of the best singles to come out in 2013.
41Satan
Life Sentence


This is their first album since 1987 and they show no signs of rust. They are one of the more underrated NWOBHM bands.
40American Wolf
Myriad


The Album is Very laid back and has a lot of cool passages on it.
39 Barrow
Though I'm Alone


This album is full of emotion and atmosphere. It is probably my favorite Hardcore album to come out 2013.
38Voivod
Target Earth


Voivod is a band that has been around for years and show no signs of slowing down. Even without Piggy they are able to still make amazing music. R.I.P Piggy
37Ulcerate
Vermis


This album is as heavy as they come. Includes some of the best Drumming I have ever heard.
36Avantasia
The Mystery Of Time


With one of the more theatrical albums to come out in 2013 Avantasia have created yet another great Power Metal album.
35Darkthrone
The Underground Resistance


Darkthrone is known as one of the elite bands of the Norwegian Black Metal movement. On this album Fenriz and Nocturno Culto have moved away from their old Black Metal sound and gone a little more Traditional. I was a big fan of them in their Black Metal days but I cannot say this change has upset me. I believe they have made one of the best Traditional Heavy Metal albums I have ever heard.
34Blood Ceremony
The Eldritch Dark


This album contains a lot of really cool old school Blues/Rock elements.
33Carcass
Surgical Steel


This is their first album since 1995. Carcass has come back to prove after all these years they are still one of the better Death Metal bands out there.
32Nails
Abandon All Life


17 minuets of some of the most chaotic sounding music I have ever heard.
31The Knife
Shaking the Habitual


Probably my favorite Electronic album of 2013.
30Ihsahn
Das Seelenbrechen


Yet another great album by Ihsahn.
29The Ruins Of Beverast
Blood Vaults - The Blazing Gospels of Heinrich...


Possibly the darkest and most hellish sounding album of 2013.
28Alice In Chains
The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here


A lot of Cool Riffs on this album. Alice In Chains continue to make great albums after more than 20 years of being a band.
27Tribulation
The Formulas of Death


A very strong sophomore album by a bright young Swedish band. This album has a very nice combination of Blackened Death Metal and Prog Rock.
26Black Sabbath
13


After all these years Black Sabbath haven't forgotten how to make a good album.
25Bill Callahan
Dream River


I have never been a huge fan of American folk or country. But I love Bill Callahan and I love this Album.
24Amon Amarth
Deceiver of the Gods


Amon Amarth continues to remain one of the top Melodeath bands in the world.
23In Solitude
Sister


In Solitude Takes Traditional Rock/Metal and adds their own twist to it.
22Vali
Skogslandskap


This is an incredibly emotional instrumental Neofolk album.
21Scale The Summit
The Migration


An awesome Instrumental prog album.
20The Dillinger Escape Plan
One of Us Is The Killer


D.E.P have made yet another great album with One of Us is the Killer.
19Heaven Shall Burn
Veto


This album is perhaps Heaven Shall Burn's strongest to date. This album has become one of my favorite Melodic Death Metal albums of all time.
18Phoenix
Bankrupt!


Along with amazing songwriting and good production this album features some of the best sounding Keyboards I have ever heard.
17Bolzer
Aura


An incredibly dark, heavy and epic album.
16ASG
Blood Drive


ASG is one of my favorite Stoner Rock Bands. This album was one of the many gems to come out in the summer of 2013.
15St. Lucia
When The Night


This album includes everything I loved about 1980's pop music while excluding Everything I hated about 1980's pop music.
14The National
Trouble Will Find Me


This is my favorite Indie album of 2013. The National is one of those bands that impress me with every album they make.
13State Faults
Resonate/Desperate


A really cool Hardcore album full of awesome cords and one of the best hardcore Vocalists out there.
12Wolfheart
Winterborn


One of the Strongest debuts I have heard in a while for the Metal Genre.
11Okkervil River
The Silver Gymnasium


An album full of great songs.
10Nils Frahm
Spaces


This is an excellent instrumental album.
9Wardruna
Runaljod - Yggdrasil


2013 was the year I started listening to more Neofolk. This album is so far my favorite in the genre.
8TesseracT
Altered State


Great album. TesseracT have become one of the better Prog Metal bands of the 2010's.
7Sigur Ros
Kveikur


A really Cool album with a really cool atmosphere.
6Falkenbach
Asa


These guys are one of my favorite Folk Metal bands. This is yet another strong album of theirs.
5Chvrches
The Bones of What You Believe


A pretty cool Synthpop album with lots of fun and Catchy songs.
4Haim
Days Are Gone


A really fun Pop album. I was not expecting to enjoy this album as much as I did. This album has some of the catchiest pop songs I have ever heard.
3Julia Holter
Loud City Song


One of the more creative albums to come out in 2013. This album has a very unique atmosphere to it which is unlike anything I have heard before.
2Queens of the Stone Age
...Like Clockwork


Of all of the Albums this band has made this one is by far my favorite. Songs like "I appear Missing" and "My God is the Sun" are some of the greatest rock songs I have ever heard.
1Deafheaven
Sunbather


This was probably my favorite album of the year. They only album that I came close to liking more than this was ...Like Clockwork. This album has an intense emotional feel to it that is relentless throughout the album. Sunbather also has some of the best musicianship of any album to come out in 2013. It is one of the best and most unique albums to come out in quite a while if you ask me.
